Throughout this past December, my family read a Christmas advent devotional titled “Come & Adore.”
The second I learned this book was written by a local mama I knew I wanted to support her — plus, I love God and Christmas and people willing to bring their dreams to life so it wasn’t even a question of buying it or not.
One night mid-December, we were all cuddled in for the night, freshly bathed and ready for bed. I grabbed the book and my oldest grabbed the Bible and we opened up to the word of the day.
As I was reading to my kids it said, “We are called to shine. Not for our own glorification, but for our fathers! This world is so dark – it needs our light. I’ve heard it said that some people may never read the Bible – but they’re watching us. We may be the only ‘Bible’ they’ll ever read.”
Wow, did that hit me! Such powerful words and a major moment of conviction.
The words and story were simple, but so impactful. It was a reminder of my desire to try my best to shine my light for the Lord. To bring hope to the hopeless, joy to the sad, and peace to the weary.
Tonight as you lay your head down from another day of duties, stress, obligations and maybe even exhaustion, know this:
Many many years ago a star was shining bright as a tiny baby was born. He was born into this world to bring PEACE. To SAVE the lost.
He came as the light of the world. He is the only way out of this darkness. In Him you will find rest. I promise. 🙏🏼
Thank you @k.menashe for being brave enough to put this book out there. Thank you for taking time to write your heartfelt words for all to read. My kids and I have truly enjoyed it and it is making an impact more than you know. The Lord gave you a dream and a desire and now here it is in paperback form.
And thank you for the sweet reminder to chase after HIS light and to shine HIM brightly for all to see. ✨
